Join Frank Grosser as he leads you through a tasting of three vintage spirits: Booth’s London Dry Gin 1960, Campari Cordial 1970 and Glen Grant 1970. A short break with a signature Copperpenny Gin and Tonic and then into the real history of rum, which did not start in the Caribbean!

A must attend for spirits enthusiasts and bartenders alike.
